The Reach of xkcd

25 November 2009

Within nine hours of today’s xkcd being posted, SkiFree became the 5th (and 16th, if you include people looking for online versions) most searched Google term for the day, three web news articles were written about the various online versions, and the original author’s site went down (presumably due to the traffic spike).

That’s right, it’s even more popular than Wal-mart’s terrible Black Friday deals!
